A Shocking Decline

A new report by WCS and Fauna & Flora International tells of a catastrophic collapse of the world's largest great ape, the Grauer's gorilla, due to a combination of illegal hunting around mining sites and settlements, prior civil unrest, and habitat loss.

For a more detailed look at the crisis and the people putting their lives on the line to help, check out this video.
